We took one stylish piece of furniture and created two radically different rooms just by switching up the decor. Which do you prefer? Hint: There’s no wrong answer. It’s your choice!
This space is energized by the graphic lines of the wallpaper, which set an edgy urban feel to the space. The wood desk and shelves take a back seat to the black-and-white power line pattern that’s brightened by splashes of yellow.
